Default Mods for a 4th gen hemi daily driver

What mods would be good on a daily I already have a offbrand intake and a magnaflow muffler... What tuner should I get for gas mileage and alittle power? Any other mods under 500bucks that wont be too much for a daily?

I would get a tuner next, I run the DiabloSport predator but there is the SuperChips also. Next I would maybe look into a Fastman Throttle body. You can get a standard ported one for 100 bucks!

The JBA shorty headers are right around 500 bucks, an electric fan and 180 thermostat are cheap

And I bet if you call the guys at ARH, they might be able to do headers without the Y!

look into cold airintakes, cat backs and programmers/.they will yield the best results. headers are a weak upgrade usually produce 1-5 hp and not to much mpg. they make great sound for the most part and if you get ceramic coated to reduce under hood heat even better

"headers are a weak upgrade usually produce 1-5 hp and not to much mpg"
